10/10 Exceptional

Beautiful house
Lovely stay at the newly renovated Mariners room. Was welcomed by Eden and provided a tour of the house and offered some wine. I was only passing through for a few hours before catching the ferry so did not have time for breakfast, but the common room looked very well presented. Everything was spotless. Would recommend if you need somewhere to stay in Picton.

Disappointed as guests feel they are imposing
I was a bit disappointed. Brochure says there was a welcome drink and nibbles. Room s are upstairs. No elevator. Hard for oldies. Had to ask for help to use Lounge TV., none in room. No info on Internet access in lounge. No coffee/tea in rooms. Have to get downstairs. Had to ask for milk as none therein afternoon or night. We really felt we were imposing on the owners by being there. Charm of staying at a historic house spoiled by the lack of guest service.

The Gables was very convenient for come to and from Wellington on the Ferry. We enjoyed a glass of wine and backgammon on the lovely front porch. This location is perfect for walking to town for dinner. There are several beautiful hikes within walking distance as well. We would highly recommended staying at this location.

We had a studio at the back of the premises which was very comfortable. A very nice breakfast was left in our room each day. Very close to town centre which was good.
